The Ghetto-Fabulous Life

Rudolfo (my car) has become a Ghettomobile. Poor Rudolfo.

Rudolfo was rear-ended yesterday. The car two cars in front of us stopped suddenly, without warning. And FAST. Rudolfo gave the brakes his all and we nearly skidded into the car in front of us. Fortunately, we missed him.

The lady behind us wasn't so lucky.

Rudolfo now has a broken bum.

Rudolfo and I weren't mad at the lady, whose car was hurt so badly, I don't think he's going to make it. Poor guy. The lady was quite distraught, and I felt bad for her. It was no more their fault than mine and Rudolfo's.

Rudolfo will probably need a new bumper and muffler. He doesn't look too badly hurt on the outside, but he sure does make a racket now when we're driving around.

At first Rudolfo was kind of embarrassed about this, but now he's beginning to enjoy the extra attention he gets when we zoom around town, his exhaust pipe roaring like a '73 Pinto.

Rudolfo, you are so Ghetto-Fabulous.

You get down with your ghetto self, Rudolfo.

I almost laughed out loud in Legal Profession. :)

Vinnie challenges Rudlofo to a Ghetto-off! Vinnie is a '93 Dodge Caravan with almost 200,000 miles on it, no AC, no vents (just a few gaping holes)from which the AC used to emit, half a paint job, one working speaker, no a sliding door that so badly needs grease that it can only be opened and shut from the outside because you can't get enough momentum to move it from inside, and I have to start it 45 minutes before I have to leave in the morning, if I have to defrost the windshield.

Jay, Rudy and I may have to take a raincheck.

The muffler *fell off* Thursday night, so we had to haul ourselves into Midas for repairs on Friday. Now he's all shined up and spiffed out, and even got himself a shower this weekend.

He enjoyed the short-lived ghetto lifestyle, though. Maybe when he's older we'll give it another shot.
